Operation Benevolent Heart
No one wants to be in the position of needing of help. But we’ve all been there at one time or another. Operation Benevolent Heart (OBH) was created over five years ago to assist our residents who have sudden and unexpected financial challenges. Each month we invite our managers and board members to suggest members of their communities who may be experiencing an unforeseen hardship and need our financial support. This includes everything from landscaping costs, crediting assessment fees, to building a handicapped access ramp. One deserving individual or family is selected each month and funds are donated to assist with their current needs. The process is simple, the recipient remains anonymous and the gift comes from the heart. Between assisting homeowners in need or helping families through our Adopt-A-Family program, we strive to give back to the communities we serve.
In September, 2016 a tragic hardship fell upon a resident in the Villas at Fort Apache Homeowners Association. The resident’s 11-year-old daughter had become hospitalized and passed away unexpectedly due to complications with her asthma. Due to the costly mortuary bill and the grief that fell upon the resident, he fell behind on this monthly association payments. The Villas at Fort Apache board members, along with their community manager nominated him for the Operation Benevolent Heart. FirstService Residential was able to donate funds to cover six months of his assessment fees.
Thank you for working together with us to make Operation Benevolent Heart possible and to enhance the lives of the residents in the communities we serve. Together we can make a difference. Every day.
